City Budget: Advocacy Counts
- Issue: The Mayor’s Seattle budget for 2007-2008 proposes cutting the $280,000 the city invests in advocacy, organizing, and systems support. This includes coordination of meals programs and food banks, assistance for low-income parents to get state and federal benefits for their children, as well as advocacy to secure resources from the county, state and federal level that help Seattle residents meet their basis nee. This is a smart and cost-effective use of city resources, and when the City Council passes a final version of the budget, they should restore this cut.
